How are parks on Easter Sunday ?

Wednesday, March 27, 2002 2:27 PM

I am going to SFOT on sunday and I am wondering if it will be very crowded ? How was it last easter ? It is my Home park , and I know I should know this. But i've never been to a park on a holiday. But then too, the crowds at SFOT are always unpredicable, as well as the weather.

Some holidays are better than others. Easter Sunday tends to be a good one. Because it's a religious holiday, a lot of folks are off to Easter Mass donning their Sunday's best and the last thing on their minds is to dress down to hit a park. You also have Easter egg hunts, picnics, etc. -- a lot of family activities on the local calendars to keep folks at bay. You will still get a lot of people at the parks, but definitely less than the Saturday before it.

Another great park holiday is Mother's Day. Substitute "religious" for "devoting the day to Mom" and you get a lot of people staying away. On the flipside, I was at Knoebel's last Father's Day -- and have spent a few at the Orlando parks before that -- and it seems as if dads just love to ride. It might also be that Father's Day is in June -- the start of summer, while Mother's Day is wedged in May. Either way, if I had to guess (never been to SFOT), I'd say it should be okay crowdwise -- yet far from the much quieter experience you'd have during the week.

I'll second that Paris, Mother's Day is definitely the best day of the season to go. I ususally try to hit one of my local parks for at least a few hrs after doing the MD thing. Amazing how uncrowded the parks are that day, which makes sense though. What mother would want to spend her day at an amusement park. I'm sure there's a few, but judging by the crowds on this day, not many!

My mom Definantly would go for Mothers Day, she is a coaster enthusist. In fact we are going this year. She will be happy to know there is a good chance of short lines.
